Last week, our Living and Learning statement was ‘I can use good manners’. During our lesson about this, we discussed what manners are and some good examples of good ones!
Manners are words and actions that we can do to help us be kind and respectful to others. Good manners help us to get on well with others.
Here are some of our examples;
- Saying hello to someone and asking how they are.
- Using our ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ when needed.
- Holding the door open for someone.
- Helping someone if their hands are full.
- Using kind words when talking to others.
This week, our statement is ‘I know that rights come with responsibilities’. A right a is moral or legal entitlement to have or do something. A responsibility is having a duty to deal with something.
We have lots of rights such as; a right to vote, a right to feel happy, a right to be heard and a right to learn. With these rights, come responsibilities such as, a responsibility to listen to others, to be kind to others and to help others learn.
Help at home: reinforce these messages about using good manners and being responsible at home as well as at school. Encourage your child to greet the adults on the gate as they arrive at school.
